Weather ~ Plumbing ~ Old Photos ~ Duck Squad ~ Debbie Taylor ~ Smoky Paprika Popcorn ~ Air Fryer and Schwans Food ~ Mai Tai Day

Good 50º clear sunny morning.

By 2 o'clock we hit 86º. This is the kind of weather I love. Not hot enough for AC and nice breeze to keep windows and doors open. Ahhhhh.......

Frustrated as all get out yesterday. My kitchen sink stopped up again. The plumbing here really SUCKS! Called the plumber I have been doing business with for the last 20 years and was told it would be next week before he could come out. Too busy. WHAT????? So I called Brian's friend Doug the plumber. He will be here this morning!!! YIPPEEEEE............... He has been here before when I couldn't get the other one out here, but have just felt a loyalty. That's done!

If you are in the area and need a good plumber, Doug Gillette Plumbing 541-218-2462 !

Yesterday I scanned photos and organized them as to who they will be sent to. Me and my babies... Kristen and Brian! I was still a baby too, not even 40 yet!!! 

And Kristen on her 19th birthday, Halloween, and Tigger sitting on her lap.

And, Brian, our 15 year old, flat top, new DeMolay

The Duck Squad. Shared by John Anderson (LASD ret)  A "natural form of pest control" !!

If you are thinking of watching the fireworks on the 4th and think a big bowl of popcorn would be good to munch while doing that, then how about this:
Smoky Paprika Popcorn

1/4 cup olive oil
6 T popcorn
4 T butter
2 T smoked paprika
1 t garlic powder
1 t onion powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 t black pepper
Cook popcorn the way you normally would, but if using a heavy pot on the stove use olive oil and popcorn mix as above.
Melt butter and mix in paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt and pepper. Drizzle over the popcorn and mix until the popcorn is coated. Sprinkle on more paprika and salt. Enjoy!

Later for dinner in the Air Fryer ( ) I cooked some Schwans Alaska Cod (still frozen ) drizzled with olive oil for 13 minutes and in the micro I steamed Schwans green beans ( ) . A little tartar sauce and spinach to go with.....

PERFECT!!!! I just love it... EASY and GOOD!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy TGIF. Ciao.
